Dessicated coconut-100gms(40z)

For the syrup:
Caster sugar-4tbsp

For the topping:
Apricot jam-3to 4tbsp
dessicated coconut-50gms

you will need:
2lb Traybake tin,lined with baking parchment


Heat the oven to 180C,160C fan.

In a large bowl,using an electric hand whisk,beat together all the cake ingredients for 3to4 minutes until smooth.

Spoon into the lined tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 40 to 50 minutes,or until the cake is just firm to the touch in the centre.

Remove from the oven.

To make the syrup:
